BeatPick.com has recently extended their roster of artists with a fresh american electro-pop band, the Pointe Claire which draws the crowd on radios all over the world. You might think “what’s the news”? It is Kate Zenna, singer of the group, who also has a steady acting career behind her.
She has recently completed filming the FOX 2000 feature “Ramona and Beezus” and is known in Canada for her leading role in Canadian Alliance/Atlantis Feature “Jack and Jill” which garnered her a Best Supporting Actress Genie nomination. Zenna has had recurring, and guest, roles in acclaimed Canadian U.S films and tv projects such as A&E’s “Nero Wolfe”, Showtime’s “Street Time”, Global’s “Train 48”, CTV’s “Twice in a Lifetime”, ABC’s “Brothers ans Sisters” and CBS’s “Eleventh Hour”.

In 2007 Kate Zenna met Jonathon Fessenden, a guitarist and composer from Los Angeles. Between the two of them an artistic collaboration was born which lead to the creation of a series of electro-pop songs and their music has, since then, been described as “soothing, soulful and sultry”. They founded together Point Claire. They have recently released their first CD “I asked for you…First” which was sold out the first week at the famous Amoeba Music in Hollywood.
Pointe Claire has, since the beginning, received support from the public and from the critics: “From irresistible beats to angelic vocals that will easily retain your attention.
